Momo, you may be interested in ADePT Inequality, which is a program

based on "Numerics by Stata" and does a number of standard inequality

analyses:

"ADePT Inequality is an application for the analysis of income or

consumption distributions. It calculates all the main scalar measures

of inequality in current use, graphs Lorenz and Generalized Lorenz

curves, and decomposes inequality by population subgroups and income

sources (or expenditure types). Where data is available for more than

one year, the program generates growth incidence curves and decomposes

changes in inequality into its various components."

ADePT supports Stata and SPSS datasets as inputs.

The software is available free of charge from the World Bank's site:

Best,

Sergiy Radyakin
